The mountain is what is best of summer & winter sports, camping, fishing, hiking. We love it so much we want it to stay un-crowded!

Drove from Pittsburgh PA to Bighorn. The campground we stayed in was awesome! 5 campsites on a forest service road 20 miles long. It took it almost 2 hours to drive in. Well worth it! Solitude

Drove across the park road on US 16, which is a very cool road and very scenic. Very curvy and mountainous as you might imagine. This was in summer. Then, we went backpacking in the cloud peak wilderness, which was also amazing (scenic, secluded, quiet).
